Sector Review: Levels, Triggers and Targets
I did a chart update on the top 5 sectors yesterday. If you missed it, you can find it HERE
Charts in Focus
EURUSD – Euro / USD Currency Pair
THe Euro is the largest component of the Dollar index. Higher Euro, lower Dollar. All eyes are on the Euro and $USD. The way this chart breaks will send deep shock waves through many markets. Many world forces WANT a weaker $USD. While it’s fractionally off it’s recent high, there are lots of central bankers across the world who’d like to see this chart move to the top of the symmetrical triangle around $1.185-1.200. Because the $USD is the ultimate safe haven currency, any global downturn will likely pile people back in to strengthen the green back despite Jerome Powell printing money like it’s going out of style. Watch this chart or one of the $USD, even if you don’t trade it. They say if you get the direction of the Dollar right, your investing just got a whole lot easier as the Dollar Dominoes will all fall in line.
Aside from $CRWD which continues to rip the cover off the ball, cyber security stocks like $CYBR, $PFPT, $FEYE look like crap. Featured here is $CYBR. Price finds itself working towards the apex of a descending triangle which is a bearish structure. Price is below all the moving averages and is pressing against support at $95. I’ve projected a measured move on a breakdown that points to down around $80. I am alarming $95 for a potential short idea. On the bullish side, a break above the well-defined downtrend line would likely spark a rally. Because of the proximity of all the moving averages, I am not interested in going long until price can prove it can take out it’s 200ema at $105.50. I am setting an alarm at $105.50 for a potential long trade. On a move above $105.50 I can see a move to the prior high at $115.
Index Chart Review
Bulls re-asserted themselves yesterday and foiled a bear flag set up. Today it will be interesting to see just how much risk appetite exists in front of a weekend when covid headlines have re-emerged. Those potential Sunday night gap downs are killer if you’re loaded to the gills with risk -on positions.
